Avon calling


And what my Speedmaster MkII was calling out, loud and clear, was 'I'm knackered'.

I'd put a new tube in it and it still wasn't holding air... and no wonder really. The bead was rotten and it wasn't until today that I realised tyres have date codes! As you can see, my tyre – which I've been running on the Pan for 18 months – was made in 1969. I bought it fitted to my super-skinny Jones rim off the 'Bay and it seemed sound so I used it.

Until now. I took it to the pros this time, and the bloke who removed it asked incredulously "you weren't using this on public roads were you?".

Hey, some people just don't get it.

A new one's on order. I also didn't know until today that all Avons are still made in England.

They last well!

LAST DAY TO SUPPORT THE BUILD PROGRAM

Today is the last day to support the Build Milwaukee program. A portion of all BLACK HORIZONS sales will be donated to help support them.

http://blackhorizons.bigcartel.com/

BUILD is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to pairing teams of high school students with bike-building mentors in a collective effort to learn valuable life and interpersonal skills all the while restoring vintage motorcycles. During a BUILD season, from January to June, each participating team is given a vintage motorcycle by BUILD to work on, along with mentors, in the team’s designated space, with the end goal of racing the bike in one or more AHRMA vintage motorcycle races.

Bornfree 8 Knucklehead Wallpaper

Sometimes you have to look back to look ahead. We're wrapping up the Born Free 9 bike this week in hopes of getting it to our show this weekend, The Congregation Show, we're putting on with Dice Magazine. With that, we created a desktop wallpaper of the bike we built last year for Born Free to remind us of where we've come from. The bike was shot at Camp North End in Charlotte, N.C. for a recent Dice Magazine Issue. Camp North End is the same location we're holding The Congregation Show.

We're so stoked to show you the Born Free 9 bike. We really hope you like it, but more importantly, hope to see you at our show or at Born Free 9. Enjoy the wallpaper!
